7Pines Resort Sardinia
What it is
A lush 37-acre resort with 76 rooms, an organic spa, five largely locavore restaurants and two serene pools.
What it isn't
Just for grown ups. The Kio House of Kids program gives 4 to 14 year olds a retreat of their own, complete with Montessori and Waldorf-inspired exploits like upcycling and gardening.
What we think
The word Sardinia alone conjures vacation bliss. And 7Pines does it right, with their garden-dotted grounds and lagoon-shaped pools. Guest rooms take their design cues from the world beyond their walls, with a Mediterranean color palette of blonde woods, cloud grays, whites and turquoise blues. Each one has its own terrace (many surrounded by fragrant juniper trees); book the Sea View rooms for a panorama of the Sardinia surf. One of our favorite options? The Rooftop Suite, which has its own rooftop terrace complete with daybeds and an outdoor sofa ideal for sipping the local Vermentino white wines as the sun sets.
You're here because
The hotel offers private access to a few local beaches. (Bliss.)
After an afternoon splayed out on the sand like a starfish, you need even more R&R (hey, it’s vacation). And nothing makes you feel more brand new than the spa’s scrub—with a tour through the sauna, steam bath and ice shower for good measure.
